REYTA Finalist Just Beverley shortlisted nominee o2 community publication award 2017

Norwood Nites

Javed is a Pakistani teenager who experiences racial and economic turmoil while living in Luton, England, in 1987. He writes poetry as a way to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the stubborn views of his traditional father. When a classmate introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteeen, Javed sees parallels between the singer's powerful lyrics and his own working-class environment which inspire him to find his own voice and follow his dreams.
